Fall Fun on the Farm

Family Fall Fun
Family Fall Fun
Kids love an adventure, and exploring a corn maze and picking a pumpkin on a Kentucky farm are among the most fun fall adventures for the young – and young at heart.

 You can find mazes open to the public on a dozen farms throughout the Bluegrass State. Corn mazes appear in many different designs. Some mazes tell stories or portray a particular theme. For example, last fall several Kentucky mazes featured designs related to the University of Kentucky Wildcats National Basketball Championship.

Most mazes have a path that goes all around the whole pattern, either to end in the middle or to come back out again. Since the corn is taller than you are, it’s easy to get lost. Find out how getting lost amid the loops and dead ends in a large corn field can make for big fun.

Families will also enjoy autumn outings to harvest pumpkins, apples and other fall produce on U-pick farms around Kentucky. Kids will long treasure memories of picking their own Halloween pumpkin on a trip to a Kentucky farm. Savoring a freshly picked apple on a crisp fall day in Kentucky is another experience not to be missed.

Hayrides, petting zoos, play areas and other activities geared to kids are also found at many Kentucky agritourism attractions.

Visit the Kentucky Department of Travel and Tourism website for a list of farms offering these memorable fall experiences. With a few clicks of the mouse you can find a farm featuring a maze or U-pick opportunities wherever you’re traveling in the Bluegrass State. Use this directory to confirm location, days and hours of operation and attractions offered before making your foray into fun fall adventure.
